Disclosure of Relevant Financial Relationships and Unapproved Uses of Products
It is policy at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania for individuals who are in a position to control the content of an educational activity to disclose to the learners all relevant financial relationships that they have with any commercial interest that provides products or services that may be relevant to the content of this continuing medical education activity. For this purpose we consider relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.
The intent of this policy is not to prevent expert faculty with relevant relationship(s) with commercial interest(s) from involvement in CME, but rather to ensure that Penn CME-certified activities promote quality and safety, are effective in improving medical practice, are based on valid content, and are independent of control from commercial interests and free of commercial bias. Peer review of all content was conducted for all faculty presentations whose disclosure information provided to the Penn Office of CME was found to contain relationships that created a conflict of interest relative to the topic of their presentation. In addition, all faculty were instructed to provide balanced, scientifically rigorous and evidence-based presentations.
The staff in the Office of CME at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Mila Kostic,
Director of CME and the peer reviewer Zalman Agus, MD, Associate Dean for CME, have disclosed that they have
no relevant financial relationships with any commercial interests related to the content of this educational activity.
